These two Young Foresight videos were devised to celebrate the technologies being developed in different regions of England and to make students aware of the possibilities of technology careers.
[b]Your Future in the North West of England[/b]
This video describes four technologies being developed in the North West of England: gecko tape, air muscles, auxetic materials and spider silk. The resource challenges students to develop new applications for these technologies singly and in combination.
[b]Your Future in the South West of England[/b]
This video describes the technologies being developed in the South West of England in the areas of positioning, gyroscopes, alternative energy and robotics. It challenges students to develop new applications for these technologies singly and to combine them in developing the 'intelligent' house.
